For the 2001 season the first drop shortened by about 15-20 feet. It is still possible to see the old track beneath the new.
When the Riverside Cyclone opened it had two 3-bench PTC trains with single position lap-bar restraints. During the first season, shoulder belts were added and then removed prior to the second season. In 1984 the trains were damaged and the two damaged trains were combined to make one. In 1985 two new trains were purchased from Morgan. For the 2000 season, two new PTC trains replaced the Morgan trains.
